Each year, the CSF funds student-initiated and student-led projects that aim to increase campus-wide social equity, community resilience, and climate action. Today's project spotlight is on the ASUW Student Food Cooperative (SFC)'s Spring Humble Feast. 

Evaluating Campus Bird Building Collisions

Amount Awarded: 
$43,339

Every day the campus community actively engages with the buildings where we learn, work, play or live. However, most are unaware of the over 100 species of birds found on campus or that they collide with the buildings’ surfaces. Birds cannot detect transparent glass surfaces, like windows or glass walkways, and fly towards vegetation, open spaces, or perches beyond the glass, hitting it head-on. Reflective glass is also dangerous for birds as it can reflect habitat space or the sky, confusing birds as they fly towards the reflection resulting in collisions.
